Is it me or does the whole entire blogosphere cook with pretty beautiful foods that turn into entire meals that are edible? Yeah. Well not me. I'm proud to say that I will never ever ever have a food blog (and after you see this post, why I will never have a photography blog).
But since we're sharing vegetarian recipes as part of NoMeatPo week (put down the bacon, my friends, and win prizes), I offer you my 100% vegan meal (ala Pioneer Woman style), perfect for breakfast, lunch, hell, even dinner.
The Cast of Characters: Organic Peanut Butter, Bread, All-Fruit Natural Jam (just don't call it jelly, please), and Applesauce (starring as a sidedish, or dipping sauce if you're a freak).
Bread placement is key. If you go too quickly, you can use the wrong side of the bread, creating leakage of ingredients from the actual sandwich. This is not a desirable result. Therefore, carefully place the bread on the plate.
Evenly spread peanut butter on the bread. You'll know when you have the desired thickness when you can write a word, in this case I chose "Yo"* (it was the first thing that came to me, but any word will do) and as you can see, I didn't cut through the peanut butter.
Then you spread the jam. Remember, don't call it jelly. Fruit spreads tend to be difficult to spread, which seems sort of odd, since it's called "spread" and not "lumpy pieces of fruit chunks in a jar."
Put the sandwich together and cut it in half.** I've seen some folks attempt the triangle cut, but since you're using a butter knife for spreading purposes, I suggest a vertical cut for better precision.
Open your halves so there is a room for the applesauce and place it on the plate.
Take off the foil applesauce top and find a spoon. And there you have Peanut Butter & Jam with a side of Applesauce.
*I don't generally write words in my peanut butter, but I figured this was going to be one hell of a boring post so I figured I'd add a little something fun in there to make it interesting.
**I know I skipped a step, like putting the actual bread together to form the sandwich, but it was taking too long to make the damn sandwich and I was hungry.
